2013 Shelby GT500 Super Snake: Is 850 HP Too Much? - Ignition Ep. 81
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago tests the 850 horsepower Shelby GT500
Super Snake. A horsepower claim that high
prompts three questions: Does it actually make that much power? Is it too
much for the car? And how fast is it? We find out with a trip to K&N
Engineering's Dyno, a
drive on mountain roads, and a trip to the test track.
Ignition appears every Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

Fast F***ing Honda, that things got 87hp, LOL!!!
Honda Civic has a 50 shot of NOS and Dyno'd around 200whp, Camaro was 100% "bone stock" at
this point, besides a drop in K&N filter, and Dyno'd around 230rwhp. We put it
on the Dyno for a
baseline, because the following weeks we were adding some basic bolt-on
mods to go up against a friends 5.0 Mustang (featured in the video: Camaro picks a fight in Mustang-Town)
These two fellas are "brother in laws" just playing around a bit from a
roll on the highway. The Honda obviously has nothing for the LT1 Camaro, but its all in good fun,
so you die hard Honda and Camaro guys just relax and don't
take sh*t so personal and serious. Any car guy knows that the Camaro has more horsepower and torque, so
the Camaro is expected
to win, unless of course it is going up against a full blown stripped down
& prepped right Honda racer with all the trimmings... some badass Hondas
out there for sure, that are tastefully done as well, so Domestic guys
better show some love, respect and support, because they just might get
their ass smoked by a sleeper 4-banger...LOL!!!
